This is my first time posting to this particular forum.  Usually, I'm over on the polymer clay forum.  
Everyso often I catch the sewing bug and decide I want to make a purse (most of my purses so far have been made using E6000 glue).  A few days ago I caught the sewing bug and borrowed my mother-in-law's machine.
I found this gorgeous cream fabric with gold accents and knew I wanted to make a purse with this.
I made my pattern and used interfacing for the first time.  I got the outer fabric and the lining sewn together (I was so proud of my work cuz my stitch lines were straight for once) when the machine quit working.  After numerous attempts to fix the problem, which never got resolved, I decided to finish the purse by hand.  Otherwise, it would have ended up in the I'll finish it another time category (which is code for never finished).  
Anyways, to make this long story short, I backstitched the side seams, which added over 2 hours of work.
I am quite proud of how this turned out.  Plus, interesting fact, I like to name the purses I make.

I love the fabric you chose and it looks so soft to the touch.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Great handiwork Smiley

God doesn't send people to hell.  He simply honors their choice.
